Two Chitons - different pools
I offer them to illustrate their apparent ability to camouflage.
Whilst the first picture shows that it doesn't blend in perfectly, it shows a possible 'preparation' for the colonisation of the purple algae.
The second picture shows the animal has completed the process in a rather more uniform backdrop.
PENCE is 8mm
